Congratulations to Michele Deiber Kumm for winning the brick at Pioneer Hall.
Built in 1920, the Cattle Barn serves the Fairgrounds year round. First construction created 1,520 stalls, an office, a dining room and sleeping quarters for the Cattle Barn. The structure was created very open from one side of the barn to the other, allowing the public to easily access each year’s exhibitors. The initial structure even had city water distributed to all parts of the building through an elaborate drainage system.
The Cattle Barn now has an additional 480 stalls totaling to 2,000. Today, the barn witnesses livestock shows, auctions, trade shows and meeting. The Fair brings in up to 4,000 head with even some exotic and European breeds.
Tell us about the last time you visited the Cattle Barn.
